Road-Work-Ahead


24th Street East Work
The Puyallup School District continues to perform sanitary sewer work between Edgemont Junior High and Edgewood City Hall.  24th Street East is closed at Meridian to the east, and the intersection of 24th Street East and 104th Avenue East will remain closed during the construction activity, but local access will remain for the Lake Chalet Apartments, adjacent residents and businesses.  Construction is expected to finish before September 2019. To get around the work zone, please follow the posted detour signs.  
From the west, follow Meridian to 16th Street East (next signal to the north), then follow it east where it turns into 112th Avenue East, which intersects with 24th Street East at a stop sign. From the east, turn right (north) onto 112th Avenue East (just before the school zone), then follow it north where it turns into 16th Street East, which intersects with Meridian at a signal.
